We felt like a healthy balanced meal and knew we arrive a bit late... Spirit is open until 22h. It has a vast selection of dishes. Buffet style. Self service, the plates are simply weighed. My sister and I selected various dishes, spending about €18 each. We couldn't finish the food. Everything was delicious. Lovely desserts as well. I was... More

I really like the buffet at spirit! They have such great choices and they are also so diverse. I usually come here for lunch and Im so excited to dive in! I have to say though that price wise, it isn't cheap (and fairly so). So you can expect to pay a good bit if you are very hungry

朝ヨガした後に、朝ごはんとして訪れた。色んな種類のデリが揃っていて、店内はゆったりした時間が流れ、老若男女ひとりの人や数人のグループが美味しい飲み物とともに良い時間をすごしていた。 デリはお皿に乗せた総量で値段がカウントされるスタイル。それとは別のショーケースに並んだケーキも美味しそう! 私はヴィーガンではないけれど、海外でveganレストランに行ってみるとどこも工夫がされていて、美味しくて、バリエーションがあって楽しい。 日本にもあったら、通うなぁというお店です。ベジタリアン、とかに味気ないイメージを持ってたり、外国のごはんが苦手な人でも楽しめるレストランです。テイクアウトするほうが少し安い! Even if you are not vegan, I think you like this restaurant because their variation of food and taste are certainly great!

As a vegetarian I really enjoy businesses like Spirit - since I love the concept. Some people are big eaters, some people love a small plate. You pay per 100 gr so if you like what you see you might end up spending quite a bit of money, but in my opinion the ingredients they work with are also work... More

Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, omnivore or even a self-confessed carnivore I am confident you will enjoy the selection of food available at Spirit. I was so impressed with the overall quality, as buffet can sometimes be a byword for high volume low quality. My personal favourites had to be the Korean dumplings or the sushi and the fruit crumble... More

Affordable, relaxed atmosphere and imaginative tastes. Buffet-style, have a bite of everything and be enchanted, amazed or sometimes even disappointed but only by personal differences in tastes. Sometimes the excellent chef goes slightly off-track, like with the unpeeled pumpkin in the Quinoa Salad. Nope, ok for soup when whizzed up but in salad? No. But kudos for trying. The main... More

Spirit is an established vegetarian buffet restaurant in the centre of Rotterdam. I've been a customer for some 15 years now, I guess. Some five years ago it has been expanded and the number of dishes in the buffet has been increased as well. There is now a vast array of warm and cold dishes and I think you'll be... More

We loved this restaurant. We found it by chance. It was very close to our hotel Savoy. First we went there for dinner and then we started to eat all the courses there. All of the food was so delicious. There is an open buffet. You pay for the weight of the food. Tried local beer. There is a market... More

We went here together with a friend for lunch. The restaurant has plenty of different options to choose from, not to mention the separate dessert table, which was awesome. The place was quite crowded, and it's popular among the locals. You only pay by the food's weight, so if you play your cards right, it's not awfully expensive. I paid... More

Food taste really nice and healthy with a large variety to choose from. Only thing was that it was quite pricey (around 2 eur per 100g).
